Maple Breakfast Sausage

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"Homemade breakfast sausage made with ground pork and seasonings. Great cooked in crumbles for biscuits and gravy, or in patties for breakfast sandwiches or eggs benedict. I like to premake a large batch and freeze the patties, then just take out a few the night before."

Love this recipe. I used all fennel seeds as well, really delicious. The basic recipe that you posted is excellent, I did add a little marjoram, just because. I used 1/2 tsp of the hot pepper.

Loved the maple flavor. Only had a pound of pork sausage, but still was able to make 12 patties.

I put in 1/3 cup of Maple Syrup. It turned out great. I think next time I'll try 1/2 cup. I also used dried Sage that I ground just before using. I thought that the amount of red pepper would be...

Like others I didn't use the fennel or anise, just doesn't belong in a "breakfast" sausage. Next time I'll double the syrup and use half of the red pepper flakes. Pretty darn good.
